of that did the u.s. taxpayer get for bailing their ass out? none of it. we got the initial $10 billion mac. we did not get the back door bailout back. we did not get a piece of that company. finally look at his salary were last year. it will probably be higher than this year, $16.4 million. so he gets the bailouts from the government i am entitled. i have an expectation to exceed $1 million that i got through your bailout through hard taxpayer earned money. but you, you worked your whole life you're not entitled to social security and medicare that you paid in to because we have a different plan for you. the ceo plan is shift costs. shift costs on the middle class and the poor and take money for them. david coast is one of the most trusted visors of the obama administration. he's the ceo. the obama guys are pure establishment guys. to be fair, david what do you think the corporate tax rate should be? shouldn't that go up a little bit? he was on cmbc get a load of his answer. >> what do you think the ultimate effective tax rate should be on corporations? >> zero. zero. >> yeah, the problem
